Gold Standard is reassessing the role of carbon finance in supporting the transition to renewable energy to reflect market evolution and to direct funding to interventions most in need. In many middle and high income countries, Renewable Energy (RE) is becoming a sustainable and attractive business, thanks to the increasingly favourable market, policy and technical conditions that allow finance to flow to projects.

We are seeking inputs and feedback on our proposed new guideline for dealing with Double Counting risks concerning GS VERS. These risks occur in countries or regions where a regulated carbon cap and trade or carbon tax system is in operation and where these may inadvertently monetise the same reduced emission a second time.
